Today's post is a little different. I am posting our guest designers work here on my blog since she has had some issues with her blog. So the blog comments you leave today will be for our guest designer Dena Jones. You can view some of her previous work HERE. 
Now lets check out the amazing project by Dena.

Aloha from Hawaii! Thank you, Lisa, for hosting this fun blog hop every year, and thank you for having me! For my guest post today, I created a Christmas card using stamps.


The beautiful Christmas tree image is from a Stampin' Up! set called Special Season. I stamped the tree in Old Olive ink also by SU!. I think this is a great shade of green for Christmas cards. The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink set called Happiest of holidays. The sentiments in this set are absolutely beautiful! The paper I used is from the Holly Jolly Christmas set by Echo Park which was released last year.


I wanted to add a little bit of sparkle to the card, so I used a Wink of Stella brush to create the effect of gold garland wrapped around the tree. I finished off the card with a few adhesive pearls by SU!.
I hope you all enjoy the hop and have a wonderful a Christmas season! ~Dena Jones
